Issues with a kernel mod (UINPUT)

So, I recompiled my kernel to include the "User level driver support" module, but the module wont load, and when I modprobe it, it says it doesn't exist. the mod name is "uinput", I know as much as that, but I can't figure out why it wont load.

The reason I need it to load is to run the g15daemon program that allows me to map the G1-G18 keys on my G11 keyboard (yeah it's for the G15 keyboard, but the G11 keyboard has all the same features minus the LCD). With the g15daemon program installed, my G1-G18 keys are successfully unmapped from F1-F12 and 1-6, however, without the uninput kernel mod working, it cannot remap it to unused keys like it should.

Here is what I did to enable the mod, I doubt I did it wrong, but let me know if I did:

make menuconfig
Device Drivers ---> Input device support --->[*] Miscellaneous devices ---> <*> User level driver support
exit and save menuconfig
make modules_install
make install
reboot (and reinstall my nvidia graphics drivers)

Did I miss something?

EDIT: And no, I don't really know a work around through modmap or anything, as xev doesn't pick up the G1-G18 keystrokes.
